South Bend Council will meet Monday to decide whether to sanction Councilman Henry Davis

The South Bend Common Council Rules Committee will meet Monday to discuss the fate of Second District councilman Henry Davis.

The Council issued a notice Thursday that they will meet Monday afternoon to determine whether sanctions against the councilman are appropriate after complaints were filed for an allegedly obscene image posted to his official Common Council Facebook page.

Last month, an appointed special prosecutor declined to pursue criminal charges against Davis. The prosecutor said his investigation concluded that "knowingly exhibited obscene material on his public Facebook page" but "lacked the requisite criminal intent and moreover, the understanding," necessary to pursue criminal charges.

FOX28 will be at the meeting and will provide updates to the story as they become available.
